With a unique collection of stunning self-catering holiday homes across the Lake District and Cumbria, Good Life Lake District Cottages is proud to act as your guide in discovering a truly unforgettable and romantic break with that special someone.

Ambleside for example, is home to the Croft Gothic mansion situated in the picturesque hamlet of Clappersgate on the River Brathay. The mansion was designed by father and son George and Frances Webster and today features many of its original features, including remarkable decorative ironworks, impressive chimneys and attractive details. With its place near the river in the heart of Cumbria, the Croft Mansion provides a beautiful backdrop as you explore the local area.

The region is also home to a fantastic selection of welcoming pubs and local restaurants, including the famed Fellini’s Restaurant & Cinema – a fantastic ‘vegeterranean’ offering (Mediterranean vegetarian) cuisine as well as a state-of-the-art digital cinema showcasing the very best in film, live music and theatre.

Ambleside Cottages

For anyone looking to enjoy an extended holiday or romantic short break to Ambleside, Good Life Lake District Cottages offers a wonderful selection of self-catering cottages to choose from, which all combine the comforts of home with the freedom to enjoy the local surroundings as much or as little as you like.

Courtyard Hideaway is a charming cottage set in the hamlet of Clappersgate, less than a mile from the town of Ambleside. This open plan property accommodates two guests and a pet, making it the ideal spot for a romantic getaway.

The Old Dairy rests just 15 minutes’ walk from Ambleside and is the perfect bolthole for couples wishing to get away from it all. The property welcomes a single pet and also benefits from private parking right outside the cottage. The Old Dairy was built around 1830 for a wealthy Liverpool sugar merchant as a building originally associated with the former mansion ‘The Croft’.

Wayside Cottage is a warm and welcoming Grade II listed building with three bedrooms, making it ideal for both families and groups of friends. This attractive property boasts rich character with exposed beams and slate floors, as well as modern furnishings that combine to tempt visitors to return year-after-year. Wayside Cottage is ideally placed for short walks into Ambleside to enjoy a relaxed bite to eat or a refreshing drink before venturing out into the wider area.
